Reform Party Endorses Former Rye Councilwoman, Deputy Mayor Julie Killian for New York State SD-37 Seat

New York State Senate candidate and former Rye Councilwoman and Deputy Mayor Julie Killian (R-Rye) has been endorsed by the Reform Party of the State of New York.

“I am honored to have earned the nomination of the Reform Party of the State of New York and look forward to running a campaign focused on the important challenges facing our state and our county,” Killian said. “Civic engagement is crucial for citizens to get the most out of their government, and I am proud of my record in Rye and throughout Westchester County working to educate families and protect local kids from substance abuse. We need term limits to ensure New York families have the benefit of representation with fresh eyes and fresh ideas, and we must come up with more ways to deter and punish corruption, and put more money back in taxpayers’ wallets.”

“We also need real change in state government to make us a more business-friendly state and we must find effective ways to combat the heroin epidemic. In the State Senate, I’ll work every day to address these challenges,” Killian said.

Curtis Sliwa, Chairman of the Reform Party of the State of New York, said, “Julie’s understanding of the people in this district is unparalleled, having raised a family there and been deeply involved through the community coalition she cofounded and also by serving as a councilwoman and deputy mayor. She understands the critical importance of term limits and fiscal responsibility and will make a terrific Senator. The Reform Party is proud to endorse her in this important Special Election.”

The Reform Party achieved ballot access in 2014 and is focused on reforming politics itself, so that voters can have a greater voice and the role of Albany insiders is diminished. The party's platform calls for term limits and a greater emphasis on restoring fiscal sanity.

Killian earned the Westchester County Republican Committee's nomination to run in the Special Election for New York State Senate District 37 scheduled for April 24th. She has also been endorsed by the Conservative Party of New York.
